Whatever Happened to Sunny (Youngs)?

Published October 7, 2012 | By Ramón Hernández

Remember the late 1980s and early ‘90s when Tejano music was so popular that Black and White female vocalists such as such as Ruth, Jean Le Grand and Sunny started to record this genre.

Le Grand is now on national television and we have unable to locate Ruth. However, Sunny is back in San Antonio as Laura Youngs and last month the Houston-born Air Force brat came to the Hispanic Entertainment Archives to give us her story.

Enjoy a Romantic Evening of Music with El Bolero II

Story and photos by Ramón Hernández

El Bolero II is a musical program that promises to seduce its listeners with an array of romantic ballads.

And as Patricia Pérez-Lemppaf, the show’s artistic director says, “However, remember that falling in love and being in love can sometimes end in heartache. So be prepared for this music to capture your soul and the lyrics transcend you and make you reminisce about a past or present love.

“So whether you’re in love, have fallen out of love or you’re in the process of conquering a sweetheart, the bolero will enlighten your heart and soul with visions of passionate love.”

It was fun for family and the young at heart at the San Antonio Luminaria2012.

Lights’ Light’s and MORE Lights. Your senses were burning with delight, as you walk on to the ground. Seeing kids just running around and Just having fun old time.

Later in the evening I found a venue playing some jazz music. Being that Jazz appreciation -month just past. I wanted to check it out.  There was an assortment of persons reciting poetry. Some were well seasoned…and some …not so much. But that’s OK. That is what life interesting.
